If you’re from the south then you know that BBQ knows no season! Some people say BBQ is a summer food, I say screw that noise! BBQ is just as delicious in a snow storm (not that we have those in Texas) as it is when the thermometers hit 105 degrees. So, if you’re looking for a quick, easy BBQ that you can make inside without heading out into the chilly fall air, give this slow cooker BBQ a try.

This BBQ is so easy to make and is juicy, tender and damn good. I totally failed at taking step by steps of this recipe, sorry guys. Scroll to the bottom of the page for a printable version.

Grab your ingredients. You’re going to need your favorite rub, some brown sugar, apple juice, apple cider vinegar and a good sized pork roast.¬†Mix your dry rub and brown sugar together then rub it all over your pork roast, make sure it is coated well!In your crock-pot, combine the apple juice and ACV. Put your inside the crock-pot with the juice and vinegar mixture. Cover and let it cook. I cooked mine for around 8 hours on low, but you could do 4-5 hours on high if you’re in a hurry. Once the roast reads 145-160 on a thermometer it’s done.

Take the roast out of the crock-pot and allow to rest for 15-20 minutes. Now shred that hunk of meat with a couple of forks.

Add BBQ sauce to your meat. I add enough to just get the meat moist and sticking together, I don’t like my dripping with sauce. Slap some ‘que on a bun with a little pickle and onion then top with some extra sauce. Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork BBQ


  • 2-3 Pound Pork Butt Roast
  • 1/3 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup BBQ Dry Rub of choice (I use Salt Lick brand)

  • 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • BBQ Sauce of Choice (I use Sweet Baby Ray's)
  • Buns
  • Pickles
  • Onion


  1. Combine brown sugar and dry rub in a bowl and mix together well.
  2. Rub the sugar and spice mixture all over pork roast.
  3. Combine apple juice and apple cider vinegar in crock pot.
  4. Gently place pork roast into the crock pot and cover with lid.
  5. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
  6. Roast is done when the internal temp reads 145-160 degrees.
  7. Remove roast from crockpot and allow to cool until you can touch it without feeling like your skin is melting off.
  8. Shred with two forks.
  9. Stir meat together with your choice of BBQ sauce. I used about 1 cup of sauce as I didn't want it dripping with sauce. However, use the amount that you prefer on your BBQ.

  11. Enjoy.
